This is a really fascinating, small museum dedicated to Armenia and Armenian history. A gentleman working there the day I went was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to discuss things. A great portion of this museum's focus is understandably the Armenian genocide, which is sadly a prominent feature of Armenia's modern history. However, there are many other interesting things to see here, too- so don't worry, it's not all depressing genocide artifacts. Highly recommended.
